Greek language in Cyprus

Updated: 2 months ago

It turns out that Cypriots do not speak Greek, but their own dialect. The similarity with Greek was determined as 83%, the rest are archaisms that have survived on the island as a legacy of Ancient Greece, Arabic and Italian words, as the influence of these peoples in the past was very strong.

So if you learn Greek in Cyprus, don't be surprised if mainland Greeks don't understand you immediately.
